Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Fall 2008: “’The zigzag cable fits into a category of patterns I seem to return to over and over,’ says Fiona Ellis, the British-born, longtime Torontonian whose innovations have been documented in Inspired Cable Knits and Inspired Fair Isle Knits (Potter Craft). ‘I love patterns that can be started partway through the row repeats. When you do this, the lines that are formed move in opposition to the ones produced when you start at the beginning of the pattern.’ ‘Redwoods,’ in Plymouth Yarn’s sumptuous ‘Royal Llama Silk,’ includes an Ellis signature, the I-cord drawstring, closing the ribbed neckline. ‘I-cords work so well as a detail on a cabled sweater. I envision them as cords from the pattern spilling out from the garment.”

“Close-fitting pullover with zigzag cable pattern and stand-up neckline with a laced tie.”
